My System Specs


I'm experienced in linux, but am not a nix "head" so take my post with a grain of salt.

I see more large volume arrays formatted with EXT3 (seems popular?). I don't see why XFS would have a major impact on your performance tho...

RAID performance on a hardware card will be less than optimal until the card has had a chance to perform a FULL initialization on the array.

I'm afraid that anyone who has recommended a software raid solution has not experienced a quality $500 raid card =(
